How to use a Blast Furnace in Minecraft

Trying to figure out how to work a Minecraft Blast Furnace? Or perhaps you’re considering crafting one but you’re not sure if it’s worth effort. Either way, everything can seem a little overwhelming when you first set foot inside the blocky sandbox world of Minecraft. It’s true that there’s a lot to learn and you may be wondering whether a Blast Furnace is an essential workstation. That’s where I come in.

A Blast Furnace probably isn’t something you’ll want to build early on unless you have the materials to spare. It works in a very similar way to a normal furnace, but at twice the speed. The downside to this is that it can only smelt things like ore, and certain tools and armor—you’ll need to roast your chickens elsewhere! Read on to find everything you should know about the Blast Furnace in Minecraft, as well as what you need to craft one.
